It willalso shape the level of efficiency of any HR initiative. Hiring errors are more common than you think. Peoplehave been brought into the organization who lack critical competency requirements, have the wrong fit for thejob, and the wrong fit for the organization. On the other hand, high quality hires means less turnover, lesstraining costs, and a better talent pool for succession planning. Barker Hoffmann helps organizations bringobjectivity to the assessment and selection process to reduce hiring errors and improve talent quality.Training & DevelopmentWhile classroom programmes will remain as a staple in the employee work experience, training departmentsare being challenged to bring in more performance-based, blended developmental activities that truly impactbehaviour and productivity back on the job.

Performance ManagementIt has always been the aim for HR divisions to develop a Performance Evaluation System that is fair, objective,and that equitably rewards successful performance.

But it begins with the clear establishment of Missions, Key Result Areas, KeyPerformance Indicators, Tasks and Standards across the organization. With a clear set of roles andaccountabilities, employees at all levels in the organization are not only guided of their role in theimplementation of strategy, but are able to regulate their performance. Barker Hoffmann helps organizationsset clear accountability areas, and the measures by which their performance success will be measured, rewardswill be based, and disciplinary action will be enforced.Talent Management, Succession Planning & Career DevelopmentWhilst most employers advocate the provision of equal opportunities for growth and career advancement inorganizations, HR professionals know that not all positions and individuals are made equal. There are criticalpositions, scattered across management and technical fields that directly shape the current and long termsuccess of the entire organization.

Barker Hoffmann helps organizationsidentify these positions, find you sources of people with high potential for vertical mobility, and provide theresources and systems to grow talent sustainably within the organization.Competency ProfilingEmployee Performance success is a delicate combination of the right mix of skills, knowledge, attitudinal, andmotivational elements that fuel productive behaviour. We now use the term “competencies”. Whilst it’s easy togo online and write up a list, there are only a critical number of differentiating competencies that mean successor failure.
